Use case: a connected cup that pays for itself

In 2019 a total of 1115 festivals were organized in The Netherlands. Lots of fun, but this industry leaves quite an ecological footprint. Digital experience agency Ignation came up with Tappie: an environmentally responsible alternative to plastic. FINN came in to make Tappie pay.

Who’s Tappie? 

It’s an experimental concept that consists of three parts: 

  1. a re-usable cup
  2. a smart drink dispenser
  3. FINN

These three are all connected. First, the festival visitor connects the reusable cup to our companion app. Then he chooses a service defined by the dispenser of the cup. And payment will be done automatically! When? As soon as the trigger (in this case the cup being filled by the drink dispenser) is recognized.

The added value of Tappie in a nutshell:

  • No more plastic cups
  • Reduced costs for the organisation - think less necessity to hire bar staff and less cleaning after the event
  • A decrease in customer wait time at the bar
  • Great potential for branding on the re-usable cup
